New Car Park Controls under consideration
To try to manage the parking of cars not associated with the Club or its members, the Management Committee is considering introducing a new parking control system.
Club members will log the registration numbres of any cars they may use to visit and park at the club on membership renewal or when they change their car. The new system will involve cameras that automatically read number plates and an ipad inside the club for legitimate vistors to the club to log their registration number. This would need to be done within half an hour of arriving at the club.
Any unknown car registration numbers of cars that have entered and parked in the club car park will be issued with an automatically generated parking fine. Should any genuine members be issued with a parking fine because they have not had their number plate registered in the system will be able to make an appeal to the club to have the fine rescinded.
This proposal is to be considred at the Club AGM and members will be asked for their views on whether this would be an acceptable way of preventing unauthorised vehicles parking on the Club site. Whilst it is not a major problem during the summer months, once the Rugby Club starts playing home matches, upwards of 15 cars have been known to park on our site whilst the match is on.
